Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

There are no stupid questions!

URGENT! I had something come up this weekend and I cannot ship until Monday. I'm sorry... It will be out first thing Monday morning.

Hi, Monkeeinthemiddle shipped her pkg. today (Monday Oct. 28th) Sorry it's late. We had some unexpected family issues this week. Thanks, Julie Pia

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger TeaLady said...

At 9:56 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Tammy...thanks for the head's up. Definitely let me know that it has, in fact, been shipped.

Thank you!

 
At 9:58 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

becca, thanks for your interest!

BBM is a ton of work; taking a month or two to set up, and at least that much time for all the boxes to ship and arrive. So...it's something that happens about twice a year now (I like to take a small breather between rounds).

I'm thinking February or March; definitely post-holidays.

 
At 9:58 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thank you, Julia!

 
At 9:59 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

fit chcik; see my reply to becca...

Hi Stephanie, I emailed you when I shipped... but didn't hear back... so I just want to make sure you know my package shipped this week!

 
At 9:37 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Tammy...had a busy weekend, but yes...got it, thanks!

 
At 7:39 PM, Blogger Julie Pia said...

Hey Stephanie,

monkeeinthemiddle received her package from www.acatinthekitchen.com

This was so much fun. Can't wait to do it again sometime.

Thanks for all your efforts in putting this enormous thing together. love, Julie

 
At 11:01 AM, Blogger The little things said...

hi stephanie- sorry I missed the boat and DIDN'T let you know that YES I have shipped and I got word via her blog and pictures that she HAS received her package! I also got word from whoever had my name that they were not able to ship as something had come up and would ship soon:) sorry that I didn't post this sooner:)

 
At 12:57 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Julia...thanks!

PS: you may want to blur out your address, in the photo of the box. Most don't want to share that information with the web...

 
At 12:59 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

the little things: thanks for letting me know!

Oh this is fun...when can I sign up too? Next year? Thanks Stephanie...can't wait. Cheers Deeba

 
At 6:11 PM, Blogger sassy2 said...

I came across this on someone else's blog. They just got their box. I was wondering how often you do it, and how to sign up. I love to send stuff to people.

 
At 4:13 PM, Anonymous Scrumptious said...

What an amazing idea! I'm worried I'll forget to sign up when it happens again (I have "on" months and "off" months of keeping up with blogs). Can I sign up here in advance?

 
At 10:54 AM, Anonymous Pam said...

Hi Stephanie...did you receive the email I sent about this round of BBM? Just checking since emails seem to be disappearing...let me know if you didn't & I'll send it again. Thanks!

 
At 6:00 PM, Blogger Sharon said...

I have seen this before and wanted to participate...I was told to check back...but it seems I have missed it again. Do you have an idea of when next year you will do it? So I can put it on my calendar?

 
At 11:39 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

What a fun idea! I would love to participate next round...when does it happen? Can I be notified?
Thanks for your work on a project with many ramifications :)

Hey Stephanie, I sent you an email with a link to my blog post about the package that arrived... but it's not posted on your site yet. No worries if you are behind... I just want to make sure you got it! Here is the link again: http://bostonfoodandwhine.blogspot.com/2008/11/my-bloggin-by-mail-package-arrived.html

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay, here's the post of that lovely package you sent, thanks again!

At 8:05 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Passionate About Baking: definitely!

 
At 8:06 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

sassy2: Thanks! And see my response to becca, above.

 
At 8:10 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thanks, scrumptious!

Sorry...so much time between events, I wouldn't want the responsibility of keeping track of it till then.

Just have to keep checking in...

 
At 8:12 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Hey Pam...not sure. What was it about?

 
At 8:13 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Hey Sharon...sorry you missed it! See my earlier reply to becca.

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Candy...thanks!

There's usually about six weeks alotted for sign-ups, so see reply to becca (above) & at the right time, I'm sure you'll see it popping it up. Plenty of time!

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Tammy...got it, and your comments. Just been busy!

Thanks...

 
At 8:19 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

farhan...thanks!

 
At 4:07 AM, Blogger Aparna said...

Such a nice idea. I would love to be a part of this. Will check back early next year.

 
At 5:00 AM, Blogger Arundathi said...

hi there - was so excited about this BBM - first one i was taking part in. its lovely to see everyone's posts. i guess i was unlucky in that neither did i get a package nor did the recipient i sent it to acknowledge that they got it! :(

i hope to have better luck next time. thanks for organizing this though - its a wonderful idea.

 
At 2:56 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I so want to be in the next Blog by Mail group.
My e-mail address is gypsea83@hotmail.com and please let me know when and where.
Thank you for all your hard work and effort I hope you are fine and please have a great Holiday season . See you in the next blog

 
At 11:11 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Aparna; that's an excellent idea!

 
At 11:12 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Arundathi; don't give up hope yet! Let me try to track things down for you...

 
At 11:55 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Anny; I wish I could, but if I promised to email every single person who's interested in BBM, I'd never get anything done!

Just need to check back next year, like everyone else.

 
At 11:24 AM, Blogger Cindy said...

Arundathi, please don't be discouraged, I have not received my package, either. The person I sent to immediately let me know the package arrived. However, I put tracking on the package, I thought that it was pretty clear in the directions that we should do that. All participants were to give the tracking number to the hostess. It is inevitable that some will not follow through. I seem to participate in these things and am generally the one that doesn't get my package.

You would think I would learn! I don't do it to get things, I do it because it is so fun. The joy for me is in the giving, as I am sure it is for you. It is Dec. 8th and I still don't have a package. It was reported to have been shipped Nov. 12th, then I got an email saying it was sent Nov. 30th. There is no tracking number to my knowledge. Very frustrating. I think the expectations were very clear, but I am not disappointed and will participate again, I think!!!

 
At 6:56 AM, Blogger Jacelyn said...

Hi, I have yet to received my package too. Just wondering if stephanie could check for me... and I forgot the person i sent to. Do you have a record?

 
At 11:45 PM, Blogger Cindy said...

My package arrived, I breathed a sigh of relief! It was shipped from Australia on Dec. 4th, I got it at the post office yesterday, Dec. 13th. I am so impressed that it got here so quickly!!!

I'll post photos on my blog tomorrow, it is nearly 11pm here. I had an art show all day today, selling my handmade glass beads. I am bushed!!!

 
At 10:26 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Jacelyn; I've sent you an email.

 
At 10:08 AM, Blogger Cindy said...

I posted a photo of my blog package from Australia. Thank you again, Liz.

 
At 6:35 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Thanks for that, Cindy.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger devilish delights said...

hey i found out about ur blogging by mail.. and i think its so cool, i really wanna be part of that.. can i be added to the list??? XX

 
At 8:21 PM, Blogger Kai said...

Hi, Stephanie, I've already emailed you twice, but it looks like you didn't get them.

I'm just wondering, since I haven't received my package yet for this round. The person who is supposed to send to me hasn't contacted me or anything, so I'm assuming he or she is not worried that something's been lost in the mail. So I gather that person is one of the three who has yet to ship.

If I'm correct, I'd just like to know if there's any chance my package would be shipped, or should I just resign myself to the fact that I'm one of the unlucky ones this round?

Thanks again for always being the gracious hostess, and for putting up with things like these.

 
At 8:11 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

devilish delights: thanks! It is a lot of fun.

There's no 'list', per se; people just wait for an announcement & sign up then. Sorry...it's the best I can give you; just check back periodically.

 
At 8:13 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

Kai; I'm devoting a large chunk of this coming weekend to tracking down the last of the packages...to see if those who haven't shipped are planning to, if boxes arrived & no one thought it important enough to tell me...and most importantly, contacting my 'Angel' squad about those without packages! So, don't give up just yet.

 
At 2:15 PM, OpenID the25thyear said...

any chance of this happenening again this year?

 
At 8:22 AM, Blogger Stephanie said...

the 25th year; check current blog entry...new round going on now!

 
At 3:54 PM, Blogger Linders said...

Sign me up for the next round!
